Dr. Gougeon Presents on Lincoln in Emerson’s Home Town

In February Prof. Len Gougeon gave a presentation on  “Transcendental Politics: Emerson, Lincoln, and the Civil War,” in a series sponsored by the William Monroe Special Collections at the Concord Free Public Library, Concord, MA, the home town of Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Dr. Gougeon’s work on Emerson is nationally acclaimed, with his Virtue’s Hero: Emerson, Anti-Slavery and Reform (first published in 1990 and republished in 2010 by University of Georgia Press) widely acknowledged as changing sch0lars’ sense of Emerson’s involvement in the anti-slavery movement.
